  1. It's 14 1/2" and no I didn't change the comb. I never noticed it shooting high. I shot it in 3 or 4 matches with the 20" barrels and it ran great, I just like the feel of my old Stevens 315 better, it's what I'm used to...
  2. So ive decided to sell my baikal single trigger izh43e. 12ga 26" chrome lined barrels with the factory chokes and a 20" bounty hunter II barrel in 12ga also included. (i couldn't bring myself to cut down the choked barrels so i bought a set of 20") it has ruger vaquero springs, stay open mod done, barrels funneled, ejectors on the 26" barrels converted to extract only and split and epoxied, ejectors disabled on the 20" barrels and modified to extract only, auto safety deactivated, polished the action, i.e. the works!!! i made a spacer to lengthen the stock and it has a leather cover over it (it looks like something i made, hence the cover). all the work was done by me and she is a great, fast, light great shooting shotgun! (the skull and crossbones is just a sticker i can peal it off if you like) $850 for everything shipped from me to your ffl
  3. Well, after 22 years of ownership, i have sold my 1978 0138 SKS to buy a 73 in 45acp. The new owner had zero interest in the 6 steel mags i had for it so im selling them separately. 2 are 30's and i think the other 4 are 35 or 40... i dont remember as i havent had that gun out since i got into cowboy action several years ago. i had dozens of these steel mags and kept these 6 since these all functioned flawlessly in MY rifle but as you know they may need adjusting to function in yours. $100 for all 6 shipped in a flat rate box to your door. no shipping to communist strongholds were they are discriminated against (i.e. md, nj, ny, ca, ma, etc) paypal "friends and family" preferred now posted on several forums, first "ill take it" gets them
  4. Thanks for all the replies!!! Ok, to answer a few questions. I use a Hornet AP press with the Hornady powder drop. I buy primers by the 1000, bullets by the 1000, prefer by the jug and load 500 at a time. Sometimes. I also load 45acp, 5.0 gn tb and use the same bullet and same primers but a taper crimp instead of roll crimp. Very consistent and have never had a "pop". This problem is only with the 45colt. I don't know what funnel is in my powder drop. I bought it used about 3 years ago and it just started with this problem this year. I can post a picture if that would help. I have measured my drops and calibrated my digital scale. I'm thinking of buying a powder cop... Or buying 45acp cylinders but that won't elevate the problem in my rifle... I do leave my powder in the drop with the lid on it when I'm done loading and refill it as needed... But I've always done this... Like I said, the only thing I've changed is my bullets, I like routine and consistency...
  5. so my standard 45colt load for trailboss is 5.5gn with a 200gn bullet, federal large magnum pistol primers. this year i have had the most inconsistent loads i can imagine... one round will be a pop, the next is a boom... so far i have not had many that sounded or felt like the previous... i.e., nearly no two are alike... i ran this same load for the last 2 previous years without this problem... it doesn't matter what guns i fire them through, they all do this... i know TB is inherently inconsistent but this is ridiculous! i have installed a fish tank pump on my powder drop and that has not helped, i stepped my charge up to 6grains and im still getting "light loads"! seriously, you can almost count the time from the muzzle to the target! im at my wits end here trying to figure this out! the only thing i have changed is bullets (im now using Missouri bullets' "cowboy #4 Brinell 12 , i was using stateline bullets 9-10 BHN ) any ideas?
  6. Blue 32's, black 31's and 2 more pair of the 34 brown striped still available

  9. Has anyone seen or have one of these? I kind of want one!!! https://americanguncraft.com/product/diablo-break-open-blued-finish-12-gauge-pistol-rosewood-grip/ I think it would be a hoot!!!
